This is a short selection of differently focused projects that we have implemented for our partners.

The Manuscriptorium project creates a virtual research environment providing access to all existing digital documents in the sphere of historical book collections (manuscripts, incunabula, early printed books, maps, charters and other types of documents). These historical resources, otherwise scattered in various digital libraries around the world, are now available in a single interface of the Manuscriptorium digital library. The service provides seamless access to more than 5 million digital images.

The ETNOFOLK portal collects and presents information on the traditional folk culture in Central Europe and its role in the present.
(AiP Beroun coordinates the project technically and also prepares one of its parts, ‘The Knowledge Database’, aggregating information on folk culture from academic workplaces of ethnological institutes in Central Europe.)

The project of a digital catalogue of the Czech Museum of Fine Arts (Gallery of the Central Bohemian Region now) – ‘Collection Explorer’ – presents to the public the rich collection that could last be seen in a coherent form in a permanent exhibition in the 1960s.
